Lessons Not Learned
Hi friends! Welcome back! I love when cute outfits happen accidentally. This was one of those looks that was supposed to be something else completely and just ended up not working out so I had to improvise last minute. I have a bad habit of creating outfits in my head, assuming they'll work out when I put them on, and then being disappointed when they don't. This happens a lot for me because, well honestly, I'm just too lazy to try on a bunch of outfits ahead of time. I mentally create one outfit and then just hope for the best when it's shoot day. Sometimes the outfits end up coming out exactly how I envisioned, but sometimes they REALLY do not. I originally planned on wearing a very oversized graphic tee with these jeans but when I put them on together it was a disaster. I thought maybe it would be a fun grungy look with the big tee and the wide leg jeans but no. Just no. I couldn't have looked more sloppy if I tried. So there I was again, in the same boat I find myself over and over. Stressed out and trying to figure out how to fix this mess quickly now that it's the day of shooting and I planned on leaving my house in 10 minutes.
I looked over at the pile of new clothes that has been accumulating over the last few months (because I have no idea where I'm planning on putting them) and there it was. My prayers were answered. This top was a random purchase that I saw on an Instagram ad. I planned on wearing it around the house but it just seemed to be calling my name this day. I put it on (not expecting much) and it ended up being perfect! I'm literally laughing to myself as I'm typing because of how dramatic and ridiculous this story is. Anyway, thankfully this crop top worked out because who knows how long it would have taken me to come up with a new look otherwise. The moral of the story is to do better than me and try on your outfits beforehand. For whatever reason I refuse to learn my lesson, but that doesn't have to be you. It'll save you the unnecessary stress of scrambling for a new outfit last minute. In this case it worked out, but a lot of times it doesn't and then you're left wearing something you hate. It's not worth it. Trust me. All outfit details are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.
